Rarotonga, Cook Islands 2008

November 2008

It seems like so long ago, looking back at the photos and thinking 2008! But in reality it's not that long ago and was our second trip to the beautiful Cook Islands (we've now had three trips and one planned for 2012!).

Stay: Edgewater Resort

It's a little bit old, but when you plan on spending your days snorkeling, reading by the pool and visiting family they meet all the basic requirements. The restaurant's food is quite good too, and the local bus stops inside making it easy to get to other parts of the island.

Island Night at the Edgewater - great buffet and great entertainment.

Lunch at Cafe Salsa in town

Trader Jacks - a great place by the water to watch time pass.

Tamarind House - my favourite place to eat on the Island. Gorgeous location, great food and friendly service. The Salmon sashimi I had just melted in your mouth.

Kikau Hut - near the Edgewater (walking distance) a cute little place with live music. It's apparently changed hands since we were there in 2008, but food is meant to have improved, who would have thought it could?

To do:

The Saturday markets down by the water in town. Always a great place to grab some fresh produce, eat some Ika mata (raw fish) and see what the locals are up to.

Captain Tama Muri Beach Lagoon Cruise. Great day spent on the lagoon, including lunch on a near by Motu.

Snorkel and feed the fish near the hotel - just stunning
